September 26, 2023

Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar says the murder of Sikh activists is the result of growing state-sponsored intolerance under Hindutva ideology by the BJP-led Indian Government.

Interacting with the media persons in London, he said Pakistan remained a victim of the Indian state-sponsored terrorism; especially the Balochistan has been heavily affected due to the terrorism of India. He added now other nations are also being suffered due to the nefarious designs of India.

Highlighting plight of minorities in India, the Prime Minister expressed dismay that the Muslims, Sikhs, Christians cannot live in India as fully qualified citizens.

He said several movements such as Cow Vigilante groups are being encouraged in India to suppress minorities.

To a question, he said a policy is being devised to export the semi-skilled and unskilled workers to the European nations and a comprehensive discussion has been held with the British Foreign Minister in this regard.

Answering a question, he said the Election Commission would soon announce the polling date and the government would assist the commission in conducting free, fair and transparent elections in the country.

To another question, the Prime Minister said incidents of 9th May were orchestrated as a big ploy against the current military leadership and the culprits involved in vandalism on that day would be brought to justice.

Regarding economic challenges, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar said bringing economic stability to the country is the top priority of the government and domestic investment will be facilitated for wealth creation. He also vowed to broaden the tax net to ensure quick service delivery to the people in health, education and other areas.

The Prime Minister expressed satisfaction that Barrick Gold made hefty investment in Pakistan and other companies are also looking for investing in the country.

Talking about government’s privatization agenda, Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar said it is in the interest of Pakistan to privatize the loss-making State-Owned Enterprises.

He said it is priority of the caretaker government to privatize one or two SOEs during its short stint in office.

Responding to a question about the hefty electricity bills, he said monetization of the bills is being started. He added privatization of power distribution companies is on the cards.
